Growing Our CDIS Program

My current organization does not have enough CDIs to cover all of our inpatient cases yet. We are in the growing process and are in an AP-DRG state. We need to decide whether it is best to concentrate our efforts 1) on new cases to establish initial SOI/ROM and forego or limit subsequent re-reviews or 2) start fewer cases and review until discharge? Any and all help will be appreciated! Thank you!


  • Greetings,

    Just to be clear, you have APR-DRG cases? Do you also have MS-DRG cases? I understand not having enough CDI professionals to touch all payers as I am in the same boat. There is a software vendor that can really help with getting you the right cases at the right time. However, depending on the size of your facility, you may be able to manually determine which cases to open to some degree. I would be happy to connect and talk more about this if you like.

    Kind Regards,
